On September 1st, the Jaguar C-X75 Concept made its appearance at the 2010 Paris Motor Show, back then we were told that it was just “a pure concept”. However, we were not surprised when we learned today that Jaguar is thinking of making a production version, but will instead be called it the X-75.
This is no ordinary car, as it wants to follow the success that Tesla Motors has had with their electric vehicles. For those who cannot remember, the C-X75 Concept that was on show last week will have four electric motors each producing 195hp and two micro gas turbines producing 96 horsepower each; all this adds up to an impressive 780hp.
This soon to be production car – hopefully – will get from 0-62mph in just 3.4 seconds and reach a top speed of 205mph. According to Autocar, if Jaguar does launch a production model, then numbers will be limited from 1000 – 2000 units per year.
There are rumors that such a project would take eight years, but sources believe that for this to work Jaguar will need to do it in two.
